And I’ve pulled off most of the paper, so you can’t put me back” (320)! However, the reader can assume that Jane commits suicide in order to finally break free (320). Jane’s suicide shows how extreme the oppression truly was and how a combination of the illness and her husband’s negligence for sentiments completely took control of Jane’s thoughts. Some could say Jane’s mind loses the battle, but others could argue that it wins because she finally found the freedom she had been longing

As the camera zoomed in onto a sad little girl after the loss of her sister, I realized that the documentary, Burzynski: Cancer is Serious Business would be a difficult film to watch. Movies that depict dying children are often full of drama and heartache and this was no different. I was appalled at the treatment of these poor innocent patients and their families, and the movie had just begun. As I continued to watch the movie; however, my opinion changed from outrage that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) would be so corrupt and unjust, to realizing that maybe the movie was playing with my emotions. Although effective in using good rhetorical strategies, the viewer must separate emotion and drama from lack of evidence and

12. The author gives an ugly description of Mrs. Dubose because it shows the readers how the effects of morphine changed her physical appearance, and also to show her cruelness and how it took a toll on her body. The description is creepy, but it also makes me feel sympathy for her even though she says cruel things to Scout and her family, I feel as if inside she doesn’t really mean it and her mind is just clouded due to her illness, and she is trying to just find an outlet to release her pain. 13. Atticus explains why he considers Mrs. Dubose to be a great lady and brave person because of her qualities.
After analyzing the pattern for awhile, the narrator witnesses a woman trapped behind bars. Eventually, we realize that the woman in the wallpaper is the narrator. Throughout the story, the narrator 's mental state continues to deteriorate. Being both the narrator 's husband and physician, John assumes that he knows what’s best for his wife. However, in this essay, I will argue that Gilman portrays John as an antagonist or “villain” in her story because, through his actions, he is the main reason for his wife 's descent into insanity which proves that he didn’t know what was best for his wife after all.
She also felt that something had entered her daughter and feared it would end up killing her daughter. Mrs. Putnam mentioned that she believed her daughter and Betty had both not been sick, but instead called it “the Devil’s touch” which is “heavier than death” according to her (Miller 917). Others began to hear about the girls being touched by the Devil, leading to a mass paranoia among those in Salem, in fear the Devil would come after them. The young girls, Betty and Ruth, created a paranoia throughout Salem by simply acting extremely sick, leading to a conclusion that they had been touched by the Devil,
Later on in the book Gatsby describes the incident of how Myrtle Wilson was killed to Nick. He said to him, “You see, when we left New York she was very nervous and she thought it would steady her to drive-and this woman rushed out at us just as we were passing a car coming the other way...Well, first Daisy turned away from the woman toward the other car, and then she lost her nerve and turned back” (pg 143). From the view of readers they do not want to blame Daisy for what happened; they all find her to be a pure and innocent person who would not kill someone. The readers’ intent is to blame Gatsby because he was in the car with Daisy at the time of the accident even though he was not the one that killed
